I am telling you, this cat is smart! He has been VERY clingy lately. I know, he is a people cat. I have not been around that much. When I got back from my conference in Georgia I was tripping over him. Since I have packed for my mission trip he has been shedding. I really thought it was the weather. Someone mentioned it could be nerves because he knows…….I am going to leave him again. Don’t get me wrong. he will be taken care off properly. So, at night or during the day he is right by my side. If I am doing schoolwork and have papers spread out he sprawls out over them. He loves to pull my bookmarks out of my books and find new homes for them. He will hide pencils and pens! If I am on the computer in a chair he will hop up an lay across the laptop. I LOVE him! However, I need to give him his Frontline treatment. Need I say more?
I was invited to dinner tonight. It was a “Farewell Dinner”. Well, that is what I am calling it to humor myself haha. Too long of a post! So I got home late. I think he knew what was going to happen. He did not greet me at the door like he always does. I went to get the box of Frontline out of the cupboard. I fed him. He came. Dinner time always works! He saw the little tube. That was all it took! He is hiding out under the table refusing to come out.
What do I do? I have decided to blog hoping he will think I am doing what I do and he will come up and lay on the computer. So far, no luck! I want to do this now and NOT the last night before I leave. I already know that when I do give him his treatment (and I WILL!) he will not sleep at the foot of the bed or curled up by my head. NOPE, he never does. He will be fine the next day when he gets over his hissy fit. So I can’t do this to him on our last night together before my trip. He has proven that he is smarter than the big fluff of fur people call him. He has also proven that he does not need to be cuddly.
Wish me luck!
